The Lamest Generation

By Ezra Silk

A couple weeks ago, I took Pew’s Rich Morin to task for using the term, “Occupy Generation.”

“I have seen my generation, and it has not yet been Occupied,” I wrote.

As it turns out, there is some data backing up my point. According to a Harvard study completed in early December, 21 percent of so-called “Millenials” support Occupy, while 33 percent do not. Another 46 percent could not decide or declined to answer the question.

    Ezra,

    A couple of days ago I published a blog post (http://occupyoakland.org/2012/02/what-i-hope-occupy-oakland-can-avoid/) and used a photo that you may have taken. At the time I wrote the post I wasn’t sure of the picture’s origins but loved the image.

    If you are indeed the person who took the photo and would prefer that I remove it from my post, please let me know. Alternatively, I am happy to add attribution if you wish.

    If you didn’t take the photo but know who did, please pass on this message. I apologize for communicating to you via comments, but I don’t know how else to contact you.

    Thanks,

    John

      Hi John,

      That’s totally fine. I’m really glad you liked my photo!

      I took a look at your well done post. Good luck on advocating for strict Ghandian non-violence at Occupy Oakland. That will most certainly be an uphill battle! Back when I was writing about Occupy Oakland in December, the atmosphere there was not as well known as it is know. Thanks to J28 and Chris Hedges, that is no longer the case.

      Cheers,
      Ezra
